Formulating Difference in Modal Music: The Analysis of Emplacement within Andalusian Music in Tunisia (Jared Holton)
As part of the UC Santa Barbara Ethnomusicology Forum's UCSB ABD Graduate Student Series, UC Santa Barbara PhD candidate Jared Holton will present a lecture titled "Formulating Difference in Modal Music: The Analysis of Emplacement within Andalusian Music in Tunisia" on Wednesday, April 21, 2021 from 3:30-5 pm PDT via Zoom. The music of al-Andalus, or medieval Muslim Spain, contributes significantly to the sense of cultural heritage and identity for many people and constitutes one of the oldest living music traditions in the world. In this talk, Holton will explore the process Tunisians undertake in transcribing social and cultural difference within musical structure in order to mobilize meaning.
